Book Description :

Stimuli-responsive polymeric nanoparticles have recently gained tremendous attention, in particular in the field of controlled drug delivery as a result of offering prolonged circulation times and on demand delivery. The tailor-made design of stimuli-responsive nanoparticles mostly relies on the incorporation of desired stimuli-responsive motifs into the polymers. However, the challenge is to synthesize the corresponding polymers in a well-defined and reproducible way. In the context of the synthesis of stimuli-responsive polymers, the reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization process is advantageous compared to other techniques due to its high tolerance to various functional groups and polymerization conditions. After the synthesis of the stimuli responsive polymers, it is also crucial to formulate the resulting stimuli-responsive nanoparticles in a controlled way. Nanoprecipitation represents a facile and reliable way to produce polymeric nanoparticles. As a result, the RAFT polymerization process and the nanoprecipitation technique were selected as the methods of choice within this thesis for the synthesis of (multi)functional polymers and the formation of the corresponding nanoparticles. The presented thesis represents an overview of (i) the synthesis of various new stimuli-responsive polymers with tailor-made functionalities and polymer structures, (ii) the formulation of stimuli-responsive nanoparticles via nanoprecipitation, (iii) the investigation of stimuli-responsive behavior of the nanoparticles, as well as (iv) the evaluation of synthesized nanoparticles for drug delivery applications.

Book Description :

The concept of smart drug delivery vehicles involves designing and preparing a nanostructure (or microstructure) that can be loaded with a cargo. This can be a therapeutic drug, a contrast agent for imaging, or a nucleic acid for gene therapy. The nanocarrier serves to protect the cargo from degradation by enzymes in the body, to enhance the solubility of insoluble drugs, to extend the circulation half-life, and to enhance its penetration and accumulation at the target site. Importantly, smart nanocarriers can be designed to be responsive to a specific stimulus, so that the cargo is only released or activated when desired. In this volume we cover smart nanocarriers that respond to internal stimuli that are intrinsic to the target site. These stimuli are specific to the cell type, tissue or organ type, or to the disease state (cancer, infection, inflammation etc). pH-responsive nanostructures can be used for cargo release in acidic endosomal compartments, in the lower pH of tumors, and for specific oral delivery either to the stomach or intestine. Nanocarriers can be designed to be substrates of a wide-range of enzymes that are over-expressed at disease sites. Oxidation and reduction reactions can be taken advantage of in smart nanocarriers by judicious molecular design. Likewise, nanocarriers can be designed to respond to a range of specific biomolecules that may occur at the target site. In this volume we also cover dual and multi-responsive systems that combine stimuli that could be either internal or external.
